I've used this dive centre based on previous rewievs and was not dissapointed. Me and me wife have done 2 dives each and we were both satisfied with the organisation and dive knowledge of the dive team. It was safe and easy. The rental gear is in great shape (I've only borrowed the BCD, but I'd be confident to hire... More

Just returned from Playacar. Went diving with the great team at the Reef Marina. Local dives, Cozumel and cenotes. I highly recommend the team because that is exactly what they are. Laura, Damien, Jose Patron, Che and Stephan were all excellent. Had VIP treatment and attention for all the dives. Would not go anywhere else. See you next year! Terry... More

I enjoyed 8 great dives with the fantastic crew at the Reef Marina. Lara and Stephan answered all my questions beforehand and the instructors - Che, Rodrigo and Damien - were first class. They are a friendly, knowledgeable bunch and I would recommend them to everybody. Loved my diving experience! Looking forward to my next visit :) Leona

Che is the man! Our dive was awesome - safe, fun, and he took the time to point out a ton of marine life that I never would have spotted. This is the most professional, safety-conscious company that I've ever gone scuba diving with. When I go back to playa I'll definitely be diving with The Reef Marina. Thanks guys!

We had a good, short snorkeling trip leaving from the beach and heading out to the reef past Xcaret. It was a pretty straight-forward, lovely time. (Note: It's a bit of a challenge to get to the dive center if you're not staying at the hotel, but not a major deal.)
